Saddle rolls side to side ..help!

I have a wonderful Belgian/Tb rolley polley, use a 56/58 in. Girth & breast plate,no withers mare. My saddle is an English Stuben Roxanne EXtra wide. I trail / pleasure and Fox Hunt. No matter what type of pad or how much I really, really tighten the girth (my poor girl) it always rolls and I am constantly shifting my weight to get it centered on her back while riding. I have tried so many combinations of pads, gel things,thin line etc. etc. I just read about the Tacky-Tack saddle pad and will try that but in the mean time if anyone has any tips or advise I would appreciate hearing from you here in this forum.

I don't know if you've tried a non-slip pad, but it worked for my moms horse.

If your saddle is rolling despite all of that, then your saddle likely doesn't fit. Stubbens don't usually go wide enough for drafts or draft crosses. I'd look in to a Thornhill or Duett. Duett uses a Hoop Tree that is better suited to wide/round horses than a typical A shaped tree.

Or, you might consider going treeless with a Sensation or Freeform saddle, both of which work well for wide horses and are traditional enough looking to not stand out when mounted.

I ride treeless western saddles and they always fit the horse right. Also if you are having to fix your saddle all the time try riding bareback while doing your normal riding routine for a while then try the saddle again. It will help your balance and therfore help the saddle from slipping.

I agree with the comments that you saddle doesn't fit right ... maybe you can have someone come help you get the right fit?

I haven't ever used the treeless saddles but it sounds like that might be an option.

Also have you tried a cut back pad?
